Experience

Absolutely devastated that they’ve discontinued Loestrin 30. Mission to find a new pill that works for me as well as this one did. Worked well for my moods although in hindsight, at times felt a little lost and like my mood was dull for periods of time. Weight gain was an issue but skin was great, my skin was fairly clear before starting it and there were barely any problems while on it. BRING IT BACKKKK!!!! it was perfect for me.

Experience after taking

Went downhill mentally. Could have also been related to other health issues, but I felt trapped and I didn’t know what to do when I found out this pill was discontinued. Anxiety and mild depression experienced, low moods but exercise really helped and I began to loose weight too, healthily.
